Senior Chief Petty Officer Builder Bradley D. Genereux, United States Navy (retired) is the latest guest on Project Camino.
He spent nine months in Afghanistan with the Ghazni Provincial Reconstruction Team and was awarded a Bronze Star Medal for acts of bravery while under fire.
His book ‘A Soldier to Santiago- Finding Peace on the Warrior Path’ is an account of his deployment to Afghanistan, the good times, the bad times, and the very bad times.
When Brad retired from the military, the effects the war had on him and the ensuing downward spiral nearly ended in his own self-destruction.
Contrasting that, the book is also about the strange circumstances that called Brad to make the ancient pilgrimage on the ‘Camino de Santiago’ in Spain and the self-discovery, healing, and redemption that took place as he trekked the 500 miles to the end of the earth.
